ArcGIS Course applied to Geology and Mining - Online Training            

 

 

 

 

SPECIALIST ARCGIS GEOLOGY COURSE ONLINE later

 

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and, in particular, in ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcToolBox, for the development of projects related to geology, hydrogeology and mining.  

 

Students will gain advanced knowledge in ArcGIS 10 tools, useful for the design of geologic and hydrologic studies, such as georeferencing and digitizing of geological maps, generating DTMs, 3D cuts, estimating piezometric levels, drainage networks, multivariable analysis for the location of mining exploitations, and landscape and topographic studies.

 

Studying the online course, students will have access to our virtual learning platform (available 24 hours) where they will find the course contents, exercises, discussion forums and additional content. In this plaftorm, students are provided with real time support from the instructor (2 hours per week) whom they can contact via direct messages to solve doubts at any moment. They can also contact the instructor via email.

GOALS

  

Appreciate the importance and usefulness of GIS in studying and working with geology, hydrogeology and mining variables

Understand all the essential concepts needed for an advanced use of ArcGIS Desktop and GIS in general, but more specifically, for its use in geology and mining.

Use GIS key tools for the correct management of raster and vector data models, the creation of high quality cartography and developing complex spatial analysis.

Study the existing difficulties in the design of geological studies with GIS and their resolution through exercises. 

Learn how to prepare, layout and deliver high-quality mapping for environmental impact studies, geology and mining, etc.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS  

 

Why study Arcgis 10.x?

The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is growing rapidly and it is becoming an essential tool in a variety of sectors (engineering, environment, geography and mining), including new sciences like geomarketing. Among GIS tools, ArcGIs is proclaimed as the program par excellence due to its stability, versatility and expansion, being the most used GIS software around the world.  

 

Do I need previous knowledge in ArcGis 10.x?

No, the training course starts from the very beginning.

 

I don’t have the ArcGIs 10. X program. What can I do?

Esri (creators of the ArcGIS program) provides a free licence for a 2 month trail. You only need to create an account, download the program and follow the installation steps (visit their website)Nevertheless, we are available to solve any problem you may have.
